Bumble - Meet New People
By Bumble Holding Limited
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Over 21 million people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections.
Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.
DATE, MEET FRIENDS, NETWORK
Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes:
Bumble: On Bumble, women make the first move. We’ve changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way.
Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.
Bumble Bizz: Now we’re in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities.
Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform.
CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME
At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual matches, the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and the man has 24 hours to respond. In same-sex matches, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, while the other individual has 24 hours to respond, or else, the connection expires. By prompting our users to be bold and make the first move we’ve seen over 3 billion messages sent to date.

Good idea but bad app
I figured I’d give this a try. It was good at first, I was able to match with a few people and talk to some too (there were many that didn’t respond back to my initial response but that’s a different problem). Today, however was a different story. While in the midst of a conversation my message did not go through and I tried to resend it. The app then froze and when it started up again all my matches were gone, including the person I was talking to. I was able to get back in contact with them via Facebook. Now the app won’t load at all. I was only planning on trying this app out for a month but the decision may have been made early for me. Really glad I didn’t spend money on this.
EDIT: The day after I wrote my review I was able to get back on the app and all my connections were back. But I still decided to delete this app because the connections I made never lasted for long. I would make a connection, send a message, get one back, and we’d have a back and forth conversation for a few days and then he would just stop. Maybe it was me, I don’t know but I do know I don’t want to waste my time on a conversation that won’t lead anywhere.
In the early days when Bumble was the new Tinder, this app was great. As with all internet trends though, they are short lived. So what’s Bumble to do to set themselves apart from Tinder (besides the women message first gimmick)? Have more attractive people! It’s very obvious especially in more rural areas that they stack the most “right swiped” faces up first so you see them first, giving you the illusion of more attractive people choosing Bumble. If you live in a rural area though, you’ll quickly run out of the more attractive faces and it’s quite evident when you reach the end of the “promoted faces”. Also, Bumble does not account for account activity when showing you faces. I know one person who deleted the app over a year ago, but still shows up in the initial stack of “popular choices” even though they haven’t logged in for a very long time. They didn’t delete their account so it’s expected that they still show up, but if someone hasn’t been active in a hear, what is the point of them showing up still? To stack the popular faces, of course. It’s truly a scam.
If you don’t like it YOUR’RE the problem..
Guys, the role reversal is great. Psychology has shown when the woman is the pursuer, things work out better because she is certain and more confidant behind her choice. And it’s very nice for a change because you don’t have to stress out if she’s into you AND it answers the question quickly if she’s not cuz there’s a time limit! Brilliant!
I see a bunch of complaints on here about bots and whatnot, truth is.. if your profile bio is stupid, if your photos are uninteresting, if you don’t keep up your health and mental wellbeing, IT SHOWS.
And you won’t be getting and lady callers. Plain and simple. Get therapy or a dating coach you sorry lot.
